Assistant Manager (Former Employee), cedar bluff, va – April 10, 2015
a typical day at work for the first year was bagging groceries and I also was a cashier. after the first year I became a manager and was in charge of the cashiers and baggers giving out teels dealing with money. I learned to open and close the store count the teels and to run the shift. as a member of management I think we did a fair job in the facility. I got along with all the coworkers we worked well as a team. hardest part of the job was not receiving enough hours and having to keep all the work stations clean. the most enjoyable part of the job was also dealing with all the people.

Fuel Clerk (Current Employee), Knoxville, TN – March 25, 2015
Management have been gracious on me working with being a full-time student. I travel 45 minutes to school five days a week. I am involved with two choral ensembles which require requesting off one day or a weekend. The hardest part of the job was communication between fuel clerks and assistant store management. Specifically on requesting work orders for equipment to be fixed or following procedures such as requesting change or delivering cigarettes orders. Recently, my hours have been cut, and I am only available to work weekends due to my school schedule.
Front End Manager/Cashier (Current Employee), Greeneville, TN – March 25, 2015
Pros: Getting paidd weekly
Cons: Not enough pay
A typical day at work is having great conversations with strangers, regular customers, and coworkers. I learned when a customer has had a bad day, that a simple small can cheer them up. Our management team at Food City is great, and all the coworkers are. I have made many lifelong friends. The hardest part of the job is when our systems go down, and customers get aggravated with us. The best thing about my job is meeting new people, and putting a smile on my customers' faces.
Day Stocker (Current Employee), Bristol, Virginia – February 26, 2015
Pros: one hour lunch break and worked every other day usually
Cons: worked every weekend, holidays
My typical day at Food City was just coming in and blocking aisles 1 through 15 then stocking the shelf with bulk products. I did learn some valuable information like how to build displays and end caps which also requires to know the products height and shelf so there is not much room to make them look fuller. I had some of the best co-workers to work along side that someone could ask for except one or two but that is with every job. The hardest part of my job was if the manager before i came in didn't run any of the bulk products so that left me with extra work and i sometimes had to stay a couple hours extra but i don't mind that because its extra money it just also happened when i had plans was usually when i had to work over. The most enjoyable part of my job was just working with my co-workers they really made it a great atmosphere and comfortable to work with them.
